Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

Can I use digital payments to pay for moving services?

Most local moving companies are likely to accept some form of digital payment. Particularly with the COVID-19 pandemic, more companies are likely to conduct transactions through platforms like PayPal, Zelle, Square Cash, Venmo, Google Pay and more. 

To ensure the mover accepts a platform you can use, you can peruse the mover’s online profile and see what is listed there. You can also ask the mover about payment policies during a consultation call.

What’s the best way to set up a consultation or an appointment with a mover during the COVID-19 pandemic?

If you’re trying to set up a consultation or an appointment with a mover during the COVID-19 pandemic, make sure to use digital tools to avoid exposure. When searching for movers online, ask if they’d be willing to do a video chat to assess the size of your move. This will be in place of the typical “walk-through” they perform, and they may be able to give you a price quote. You can also discuss safe strategies for completing the job during your call or video chat.

How can I find out if a mover is considered an essential COVID-19 service provider?

Your local city or state’s government website is a great resource if you’re trying to figure out whether a mover is considered an essential service provider during the COVID-19 pandemic.

For a source of national guidelines, visit the CISA website’s Identifying Critical Infrastructure During COVID-19. On this page, you’ll find 16 categories of critical infrastructure sectors. But note that some -- not all --  jurisdictions follow CISA’s definitions of critical infrastructure. 

Do movers offer remote or virtual services?

Movers generally need to be present to do their job. But if you come across a mover’s profile that states they’re offering remote services, you can contact them to see what those services include. 

Does a mover need to enter my home?

A mover will likely need to enter your home -- unless you’ve placed all of your belongings outside beforehand. To stay safe during the COVID-19 pandemic, you might to consider keeping all (or most) of the work outside and/or having at-risk individuals leave the house while the movers work. 

You can minimize exposure by doing a preliminary walk-through by video call instead of in person. Discuss your options with the top movers near you before hiring one.

Are there ways to be safe if I hire a mover when social distancing?

If you decide to hire a mover, consider making adjustments to accommodate current guidelines. This may involve staying outside while the mover works inside your home or letting the mover handle only parts of the move.

It’s important to follow social distancing guidelines while performing any service work. For example, do not make physical contact with the movers, maintain at least 6 feet of distance between you at all times, and use digital payments instead of cash or a check.

What is considered a local move vs. a long-distance move?

Local moves are among the most common moves. Unlike a long-distance move, a local move is typically less than 50 miles and does not cross state lines. Generally, a local move only takes one day, and movers tend to charge by the hour. 

The definition of a long-distance move may vary depending on the moving company. Generally, a long-distance considered to be any move of 400 miles or more. However, some say a long-distance move is over 50-100 miles. 

Local Move

A move under 50 miles

Long-Distance Move

A move over 50-100 miles or over 400 miles; may also be called an “interstate move” or “out-of-state move”

Out-of-State Move

A move that crosses state lines; may also be called an “interstate move” or “long-distance move”

Interstate Move

A move that crosses state lines; may also be called an “out-of-state move” or “long-distance move”

Intrastate Move

A move that begins and ends in the same state, typically beyond 50 miles

Interstate moves require additional legal preparation and will incur additional costs for distance, the amount and weight of your items, the preparation required and various other factors. Moving companies tend to do an initial weighing of the truck, which you should be present for.

A move that crosses state lines is considered an interstate move or an out-of-state move. Contrast this with an intrastate move, which begins and ends in the same state, but is typically above 50 miles. 

To determine whether your move is local or long-distance, contact the best movers in your area.

 

 

How much does it cost for long-distance movers?

Long-distance movers transport your belongings across the country for you. No more renting a trailer and road-tripping from state to state with your entire house hitched to your bumper. Long-distance movers make the move happen so you can fly to your new home, suitcase in hand, and wait for your furniture to arrive. Nationally, the average price range for long-distance movers is $1,490-$2,230. The distance you are moving and the number of cubic feet the movers have to transport will both affect cost. Another factor in long-distance moving costs is whether you choose to pay for an exclusive move or a consolidated move.

In an exclusive move, which is more expensive, your belongings are the only cargo on the moving truck. The movers travel directly to your new house and deliver your belongings on a scheduled day. A consolidated move is more affordable because the movers transport your belongings along with those of other people, saving them time and gas — which means you save money. The downside is that your belongings typically arrive with a two-week delivery window rather than on a prescheduled day. Read reviews to make sure you can trust the company with your possessions to ensure a peaceful moving process.

Can you move furniture by yourself?

You might be able to move smaller items like nightstands, small desks, chairs and small tables by yourself. However, it’s best to get a professional mover near you to move larger items such as couches, dressers, armoires and televisions. 

If you do decide to move furniture by yourself, carefully lift and lower items and take your time.

Is it cheaper to move your stuff or buy new stuff?

It often makes more financial sense to buy new stuff when you have the chance to sell furniture to offset the cost. The cost of moving your current furniture can sometimes be more than buying new things, particularly if the furniture is large or cumbersome to move. You can sell furniture online, or make a furniture donation and deduct it from your taxes (if it qualifies as a charitable contribution). Some places near you may even offer free furniture pickup when you choose to donate. 

If you have valuable furniture that would be costly to replace, however, it may be cheaper to move them. To find out which option is best for you, contact professional movers in your area to receive quotes and estimates.

We had such a great moving experience with Maverick Movers! Very quick to respond, easy to set up an appointment. The crew (Dave, Dave, and Charles) arrived on time and worked quickly but carefully. They packed a pod for us, and I was amazed at what they managed to fit in it. Then they moved some more furniture to two different locations. They were super nice guys and took a lot of the stress out of our move. We are booking Maverick again and the same crew for next month when we move into our new home, and it's such a relief to know I can rely on them. The reviews for this team are great for a reason. Thanks for all your help!!

Working with Corey Barnes and the Cordobe Solutions crew was a very positive experience for me. At first I had my doubts and this was my 2nd attempt at scheduling a move from my apartment. The first move was a complete mishap. Mr. Barnes made everything right for the 2nd attempt taking a discount off the entire job! I was really impressed with that as well. Then the day of the job the movers were at my apartment before the scheduled time, they were strategic in the movement of all my packed boxes. They were very respectful and considerate of my precious fragile items and all of my pieces of furniture. Brandon kept reassuring me as the client that this was an easy job and that he was carefully monitoring what needed to be done to make the move successful. I quickly booked this company for my final furniture move and cancelled the other movers I had scheduled. I would honestly recommend them for future moving jobs to my friends and colleagues.

Andrew immediately responded to my request for a piano mover and the process was super easy to get a bid. He was even honest with me about the piano “type” once he saw the photo and said it was actually a cheaper rate which is always a good sign- HONESTY! He communicated and updated efficiently and the entire process was smooth. The young men moving the piano were very polite and careful. I HIGHLY recommend for your piano moving needs!! 👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼

There’s nothing bad I can even say about these guys or this moving experience. I mean, sure a few little bumps because no move is perfect, but the experience with these guys has secured them to move me for the rest of my life. Communication is excellent and Arthur truly runs a great business. From accurate and fair pricing/quotes, to answering any and all questions, and having a GREAT team work with him. There’s really not enough positive things I could say about my experience. Instead of detailing it all, I will highlight a few things that stood out to me and made this an overall excellent experience. 1-Probably the biggest shout out I can give is flexibility and dare I say compassion. My original move date was scheduled for a Saturday afternoon. I realized that morning that I was not going to be ready for the teams arrival and move time. I reached out to Arthur and explained the situation. TBH, I truly expected to be told that I had to meet that time or do would lose their services. Instead, I was greeted with understanding and my move being moved to Sunday. This gave me the extra time I needed and allowed me to be fully refreshed, ready and completed when the team arrived Sunday afternoon. To me, that’s going above and beyond for your customer and why I highly recommend them to anyone and everyone. 2-Luis and Jacob were prompt in their arrival. Talked to me about the move. And did a great job handling things with care and even put furniture and boxes where requested or marked in my new home. They took charge, got it done quickly, but safely and efficiently. (And even though i had a lot more boxes than they had anticipated with my size of move, they did it all with courtesy and a smile.) They even did little extra things here and there (disassembling some things, moving items not necessarily in their scope of work). Above all, they just made me feel at ease and that I could trust these two gentlemen with all of my possessions to be moved safely and without damage. Well now that you have read my book, bottom line is: if you are looking for a moving company you can trust, who will treat your property with care and respect, work with you on scheduling, and give you a great deal as well, look no further than Arthur and the team at Secured Moving Company.

Moving is stressful and scheduling a mover I felt I could trust was difficult. But the guys at Manifest were a great find! From the very beginning they were very professional. Offering prompt, flexible service (I needed a mover the next day) and fair pricing. My move took 4 hours total. Including all transport and placing items in my house, both upstairs and down. The best part was the way they treated my family. I have a toddler with a ton of energy and they were both respectful and careful around him. Best part- his inquisitiveness did not slow them down one bit! I'd definitely recommend these guys! I never give anyone five stars. But if I could I'd give these guys 6!

We were very impressed with RMS Movers. Andre, Charles and Deven arrived at our home on time and ready to work. They took excellent care of our furniture and other pieces. All three were polite and professional, and easy to get along with as well. We could not have asked for a better moving experience and I would recommend them without reservation.

There were 3 young men and only one appeared to work hard as the other two goofed off. There was a lack of communication about what could and could not be moved, the overall attitude was one of finding problems instead of solutions. I was heartbroken to see that when they moved my bookshelf, they dumped it over with no care. The washer and dryer was a challenge, which they complained about often. It was actually broken and not functioning when I got to the new place. I only moved across the street. The manager did not offer any type any of communication for this compliant. I have had 3 men do twice the work in 2 hours. Would not recommend!

I can recommend Rick highly to anyone needing help moving a pool table. He did a careful and detailed job of installing and leveling the table and I couldn’t be happier.

Waited over 8 hours for them to show up to move my pool table. After disassembling it we all agreed it was best for them to return the next day to move it. Again they were 1 1/2 hours later than they told me. After loading the table I was charged double the quoted rate because it was a 1 pc slate which I stated in my submission and they noted the night before, but did not tell me that the original quote needed to be adjusted. Upon delivering the table they scratched the brand new floor that was still being installed. They promised to return with some wax to try and repair the damage however after 2 1/2 weeks and 2 promised days they have not returned. Poor communication and poor planning on their part has led to an expensive move and damaged property for me.

The 2 movers were on time, worked quickly, while making sure they carefully loaded and unloaded my things. They were willing to help with whatever I needed (putting a bed together or relocating furniture). Overall great experience!

Guys showed up right on time and did a great job moving us. They were very careful with all of the furniture and took time to shrink wrap blankets around any furniture that needed the protection. Would highly recommend them to anyone.

These folks helped me out of a jam at the last minute on a Sunday. They took great care of our stuff and packed it in our storage so well we didn’t have to rent a second unit and still could access our important things. I will call them whenever I need help moving anything.

Everything went well. Movers we're on schedule, professional and very careful with our belongings. Only complaint is they forgot the dolly at the old house so we had to drive back across town after they finished unloading. Of course we didn't have to pay for that time. It was just inconvenient. Everything went great besides that.
